That's odd.

Circuit analysis says that shouldn't happen unless the volume pot is connected with the wiper as the input and the CW as the output. Or if your amp or pedal has a really low impedance input.

Pull it if you think it's wrong.

I really don't know guys. I'll leave it and maybe some other people that have tried it can tell us what happened when they did it.

I've never tried to use EMG's without the battery. I'll try that tomorrow and post about what happens.

The output level will not
appreciably increase, but you’ll have increased headroom and crisper transients. This
is especially useful for percussive/slap bass styles where you can generate enormous
instantaneous power levels across the entire frequency spectrum


Less sterile sound people associate with EMGs, better for cleans.

Jim, I tried both of my EMG loaded guitars with no batteries today and didn't get any sound at all. If you had it in a guitar mixed with passives maybe you were getting some sound from one of the passives. I don't know man.
